The Medics from St. Marina University Hospital Honoured for Their Professionalism with the Honorary Sign "Golden Star" of the Bulgarian Medical Association

The Bulgarian Medical Association awarded with the Honorary Sign "Golden Star" and an Honorary Diploma the doctors from St. Marina University Hospital-Varna for their high professionalism and dedication in rescuing the victims in Hitrino.

"There is a ray of light shining brightly in the terrible tragedy that happened - that is the benefit done by the medics who were the first to help. They did not care that it was Saturday, that their working time was over a long time ago, that they were not on duty at that very moment. The only thing that led them was their professional and human duty. Some of the most severely injured victims were transported and treated at St. Marina University Hospital. All doctors, health care professionals, employees worked selflessly and incessantly. What the medics did is an eloquent proof that we are able to show solidarity and understanding in the pain, to help each in trouble, and be together. Dedicated work, experience, open eyes to innovations and high morale – that is what our society requires form us, doctors. The catastrophe in Hitrino has proved that these qualities are not missing in our guild. Today, the Bulgarian Medical Association honours with plaquette "Golden Star" you – the medics, the teams which have fulfilled their duty wholeheartedly." With these words, the Deputy Chairperson of BMA Dr. Galinka Pavlova addressed the medics at St. Marina University Hospital and gave the highest honour to the Executive Director of the hospital Prof. Dr. Valentin Ignatov.

Prof. Ignatov thanked for the honour and turned to the medics, "Dear colleagues, on behalf of the management and personally on my behalf I wish to thank all teams who were at work and those who were called for from their homes. You all coped with the situation perfectly, brilliantly, you showed high professionalism, which once again strengthened the image of "St. Marina" as a high-tech, modern hospital, ready to deal with any situation."
